Word before World

We are currently in big transition, we moved home to take a job that didn't end up panning out, which threw our end game right out the window, and now we are dealing with a whole new playbook, and a lot of 'what ifs'...

Transition isn't easy. Ever. I've lived an entire life of transition. When I was little my parents planted churches, we moved around, across Canada and back again, and now it seems that my own personal life hasn't been much different, except, I'm not planting churches. I do however, hope that I am planting positivity, and generating hope everywhere I go. To be completely honest, I know I am not always positive, and not always full of hope. I try, and sometimes my brain is saying, "come on Missie, you've got this, this isn't an issue, we know what we are doing", and my emotions are having a full on, level 10 melt down in aisle 6 of Walmart. That is life.

Our transition has brought us to my Dad and his wife's house- both of whom I love very much... but it isn't really my home. I wake up to CNN, I go to bed to CNN... guys I for years have avoided sensationalized news, basically listening only to the hourly (and not every hour on the hour... maybe once a day)  on the CBC radio in Canada because I felt they were at least semi moderate and trustworthy.  If that isn't enough to tell you how much all of this sensationalized news affects me, I dreamt about the Trump administration shenanigans the other night. It has infiltrated my dreams, Oi.

I do think it is important to keep up on what is happening in the world, but in all seriousness... there is an entire world that things are happening too,  and we have no idea, it's hidden underneath all of the chaos, half the time we don't even hear about it.  Yes, stay up to date on news and events... but also, we need a measuring stick, we need a breather, we need a True North, and we need Truth.

This print will be on my night stand (as soon as I take it to print, and get a little frame for it) as a reminder... Missie... Word before World. I need the Word in you to be able to stay on course, I need the quiet to be able to hear, I need time to process... I need the Word. I need to read my bible, not just my devotion every day (My Utmost for His Highest- By Oswald Chambers (you can buy on Amazon here) is this year's devotional, and so far I am loving it).

So if you are like me, in a year of transition, and honestly who isn't?! Then this little print might just be what you need to see this year...

Share the love,
M.
